This card is from Tomoko, Japan showing a lovely lady in traditional Japanase dress, kimono. The kimono is the most popular of the traditional clothes. There are different types of kimono for different occasions and seasons, including those worn by men. Other than those worn daily by some older people or performers of traditional arts, kimono are a much less common sight these days but are still widely worn on special occasions such as weddings and graduation ceremonies.
